[Done 1.4.1 & 1.5.X] Hide Db Password (yet still change it)

This mod hides the MySQL database password in the Admin section.  It also adds an additional field that can be used to change the password.  By entering the current password into the "Database Password" field and the new password into the "Database Password (New)" field, you can chagne the password. This allows you to hide it but still change it if you need to.

hidedbpassword - Updated 06/05/2003

Updates:
06/05/2003 - Updated/verified it for 1.5.2 & 1.5.3

Enjoy!

I should mention that be sure to back up your data before applying this, or any, mod. Everything I post works fine in my YaBB installation but your milage may vary.

-Jack

Hi, this is a very good mod, I used it when I had 1.4.1, but now that I tried to install on 1.5.3, I get
Code: [Select]
2: fopen(Sources/Admin.php) [function.fopen]: failed to create stream: Permission denied
(/home/allabout/public_html/yabbse/Sources/Packages.php ln 416)
No other mods are installed. Any ideas?
Thanx

It's not the mod really, it's your file permissions. (on admin.php) You'll have to chmod it to the correct setting...I'm not precisely sure what it needs to go to. My bad practice is chmoding the file to 777, installing, and then changing it back to a safe setting. That's the bad way to do it though. Jack or someone else could probably tell you what it needs to be set to for sure.

666 - Why does a readme file excists ?
Isn't 666 just as risky as 777, I mean one is rw-rw-rw and the other is rwx-rwx-rwx. This is fine to edit and write to files but what should the permissions be afterwards, 655? 644?

hiding Sql details

YaBB SE Version: 1.5.4
PHP Version: 4.3.2
MySQL Version: 4.0.x
Server Platform: Windows
Link to Forum:

Problem Description:
I doubt this is possible but, let's say I wanted to host a forum for my friend, however, I don't want them to be able to see my SQL username/server/ or password which they can usually do in the ADMIN panel.

However, I still would like to give them admin access. Is this possible?

Cheers.

Check the completed mods board, there was a mod to hide them, not sure if it was updated to work with the current version though.
